Customer Question

What can be done to resolve a possible assualt charge before the trial begins.

There are almost always negotiations between the accused person's lawyer and the prosecutor to resolve the case without a trial. If there have not been negotiations yet, there should.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
If the other party attempted assualt first and was later slapped what can be done to help the case?
Expert:  Legal-Guru replied 5 years ago.
Make sure your attorney knows this. He/she can use that to hopefully negotiate a better settlement of the case.
